Cauliflower Couscous Tex-Mex Tacos

Cauliflower Couscous Tex-Mex TacosThese Cauliflower Couscous Tex-Mex Tacos are a favorite in our household. They’re not only super fast and easy to prepare, but their also filling and nutritious with 10 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein.

You can eat the cauliflower couscous mixture as a side dish without the corn tortilla. It would pair well with a Mexican Salad, Roasted Green Beans or Roasted Asparagus.

Some diced avocado would also be a delicious topping for these tacos. We were trying to shed a few pounds when we made this recipe so we skipped the avocados to reduce the fat calories.

Vegan Chili

Soy Free Vegan ChiliA hot bowl of vegan chili on a cold day is the best way to warm your bones. This vegan chili is a traditional tomato chili with “meat” and beans. The taste and texture of the Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles is just like ground beef, so you won’t be able to tell any difference.

We used fire-roasted chopped tomatoes for a little extra flavor in our vegan chili. However, you can use regular chopped tomatoes or you can even cut up some fresh tomatoes.

If you’re in a hurry, you can buy a chili seasoning packet, but making your own chili tastes so much better.

It’s a challenge finding vegan crackers, but if you can locate some, they’ll go well crumbled up in the bowl.

Mexican Salad

Mexican SaladThis Mexican Salad is a flavorful, delicious, hearty salad that works well as a side salad or a main dish for lunch. With 14 grams of fiber, 10 grams of protein and 136% of your RDV of vitamin C, this is a nutrient rich recipe. And thanks to the beans and corn, it’s pretty filling, too.

Amelia whipped this recipe up one day with some spare ingredients we had laying around. Thanks to the lime juice and spices, it has a lot of flavor without using any oil.

You can put this Mexican Salad in a taco bowl to make it a little more special. EatingWell.com has a cool way to make your own taco bowls with corn tortillas and a muffin tin.

This salad is great on a hot summer day made with fresh corn on the cob, but you can eat it all year round and not get tired of it.

Chickpea Avocado Spread

Chickpea Avocado SpreadThis Chickpea Avocado Spread is perfect as a sandwich spread, but it’s also delicious on crackers, pita chips or as a veggie dip. The chickpeas provide the protein and fiber. The avocado provides the healthy delicious fat. And the lemon and lime juices give it a tasty citrus flavor.

Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) have become a staple ingredient in our kitchen. Their mild flavor and high nutritional content make them a great filler in spreads and dips, like our classic vegan hummus and this chickpea avocado spread. But you can also toss them into a salad to increase the protein and fiber content, which makes your salad more filling and nutritious. They’re also very tasty when roasted.
